The beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands are situated 575 miles southeast of Miami and 39 miles south east of Mayaguana in the Bahamas. Covering 193 square miles of the Atlantic ocean, the Turks and Caicos Islands boast one of the longest coral reefs in the world, making this a fantastic diving destination!
One of the most valuable possessions of the islands are the white sandy beaches, which in total cover 230 miles and are complimented with crystal clear waters. The islands are relatively flat but depending on the island, the terrain can vary from sand dunes to lush green vegetation.
The Turks and Caicos Islands are very “user friendly” for American visitors – English is the language of the islands, the U.S. Dollar is the currency, food and water are perfectly safe, and the islands have very little crime. The people on the islands are known for their friendliness and laid-back, “no worries” ourlook on life.
We offer packages to the two most popular islands in the country: Providenciales (or “Provo”) and Grand Turk – both are excellent vacation destinations, but very different from each other. Provo is far more developed, with glitzy hotels and condos, fine restaurants and shopping. Grand Turk is small and far less developed, with just a few thousand residents, and only a few hotels, restaurants, and bars. Both offer excellent diving, with shorter boat rides to the dive sites in Grand Turk (most sites are 5-10 minutes away, while the dive sites near Provo can be 20 minutes to an hour away, depending on the site).
A major attraction in Grand Turk is the humpback whale migration! Each winter several thousand humpback whales pass through the channel just south of Grand Turk, and whale spotting in February and March has a 95% success rate – you don’t dive with the whales, you enjoy them from a boat – sometimes they’ll be right alongside your boat for quite a while.
